Would love to know which HU and amp you have in mind.

Some would love to drive down and strangle you for the wiring mess.
Thanks Man.And above "how it all starts"

Well the Hu and amp i am looking forward are :

HU : kenwood KDC-X693 (comes around 12K shipped from USA)
Kenwood - KDC-X693

Mono Amp : Infinity Reference 1600a (price almost same as HU)
1600a - Infinity Mono Subwoofer Amplfier

So what you think of the HU and amp.

Is there any better option for me in that price range. Bill & warranty are not a priority.

Not sure about how the Infinity amp sounds, but looking at it's spec sheet, I would recommend a Kenwood Mono anyday. Check this one : Kenwood Corporation | Car Electroics | Power Amplifiers | KAC-8104D

Should be priced almost the same as Infinity but is much more powerful & incorporates an infra-sonic filter.


Also, The wiring you are using is 15 mm sq. (5awg) whereas the 1600a needs 4 awg (21.14 sq mm). Consider an upgrade for the power cable.

Actually the kennys are somewhat overrated amps.
But the infinity amps are more towards sq and i like them.

Infinity amps can take the 8 guage also.only that the 4 guage is recommended not mandatory.

About the wirings,i am going to get a distributor for the power distribution.ie 4 guage to two 8 guage converter.Also i will need another 2 fuses.
So the connection will be like
1 4guage wire from battery to the distributor and then 2 8guage wire to the amps.
Hope you got me.

That will be my next upgrade.
